立法會質詢:IT專業認可及公共機構的資訊保安

 

我在五月尾再質詢政府何時重啟資訊科技專業認證以及培訓科技人才的長遠政策。政府答覆內容令人失望,稱由於社會就推行統一專業認可架構仍未達致普遍共識,故政府沒有基礎重新諮詢持份者。而就早前港珠澳大橋相關工程項目的顧問公司的電腦系統遭勒索軟件攻擊,我亦於上週提出質詢,要求提升網絡保安。

與政府T合約IT人見面


我在早前與超過三十名政府T合約IT員工會面,了解前線所需和面對的問題。會上普遍批評政府繼續用『行之有效』的T合約政策對前線IT人用完即棄,明顯不尊重IT人。有IT人提議政府可考慮參考醫管局的做法,讓長期在政府服務的T合約員工轉職公務員,亦必須盡快取消『過冷河』的做法,令IT人有自由選擇中介公司的權利。

與民間團體解說《公共檔案條例草案》


我在五月尾聯同陳淑莊及郭榮鏗議員,與檔案行動組及民間團體見傳媒,介紹我們正尋求以私人條例草案形式提交的《公共檔案條例草案》,一同要求下屆特區政府盡快啟動訂立《檔案法》,保障市民知情權。

議題關注

適當規管共享經濟

 

創科局局長楊偉雄本週在立法會語出驚人,先表示政府會加強打擊網絡出租住宿和網召車服務,後在社交平台稱『遏制違法活動是維持香港法治安定的根本』。按照此說法,速遞服務、互聯網、廉價IDD電話服務、小巴等都不會出現。一個負責任的政府應該制訂對所有人都公平的一套規管制度,保障市民的同時亦兼顧創新,令香港更進步和有競爭力。

關注空管問題

 
新空管中心及指揮塔的工作席早前被揭發需要定期於每兩個星期進行重啟,做法治標不治本。真正解決方案不是每週重新啟動系統,是民航處必須承認新空管的採購和驗收出現問題,並盡快在舊空管系統老化和三跑投入運作前重新設計及採購新系統。

反對本地象牙貿易

 
本週二立法會環境事務委員會舉行公聽會,就淘汰本地象牙貿易聆聽公眾意見。國際間自1990年起已禁止象牙貿易,但在本港仍可向政府取得許可證進行交易。我在會上發言支持全面淘汰本地象牙貿易,表示殘酷對待動物非文化,應該取消。

支持:彈劾梁振英

 
週三在立法會會議上我發言支持彈劾對梁振英干預UGL專責委員會的調查提出彈劾議案,並譴責梁振英與周浩鼎私通。兩人的行為不可接受,更令整個政府和立法會蒙羞。

為創科局工作盤點


我在本週的《信報》專業議政專欄寫到香港政府和高官如果繼續沿用舊方法推動創新科技,香港的競爭力只會繼續下降。時間不等人,恐懼新事物帶來的顛覆亦不會停止他們出現,來屆政府實在需要盡快檢討創科政策的不足之處。

 

Works at Legco 

Council questions on ICT professional recognition, cybersecurity

 

On 31 May, I asked a council question on when the government will resume its work on establishing a qualification framework for ICT professionals but with much disappointment, ITB replied the government has no plan to re-initiate the discussion citing the lack of consensus. Another council question that I raised on 31 May launched on the cybersecurity measures of the public institutions in regard to the incident that the computer system of a consultancy firm working on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge project was attacked by ransomware.

Event highlights

Discussion with Government’s IT T-contract staff

 
I met with over 30 IT professionals currently working across different government departments under “T-contract” arrangement to garner the views and suggestions on improving the system which has long been drawing criticism. Attendants criticised the government of treating them as “disposable assets”. The discussion pointed towards reforms such as allowing T-contract staff with long service period to opt for transition and eliminating the unreasonable “sterilisation period” when a staff was hired by another agency for the same position.

Media briefing on Draft Public Records Bill

 
Together with Hon Tanya Chan, Hon Dennis Kwok, the Archives Action Group and other civil groups, we introduced the Draft Public Records Bill that Hon Chan, Hon Kwok and I will table as a Members’ Bill in Legco. We also urged the incoming administration to implement such archives law to protect the citizens' right to know.

Issues of concern 

Reviewing laws to enable sharing economy to flourish

 

Mr Nicholas Yang, the Secretary for Innovation and Technology, announced the government’s “zero-tolerance” attitude towards ride-sharing and room-sharing platforms during Legco Q&A this week (7 June) and reiterated that “innovation must comply with laws”. This in itself sounded to be correct, yet Mr Yang must have overlooked that many items we take for granted today were innovations that were illegal in the beginning. A responsible government should conduct a proper review and consultation on regulatory approach, rather than hampering innovation using decades-old laws with no regard to citizens’ needs, effectively maintaining the status quo that only benefit vested interests. 

 

Is it too much to ask for a air traffic control system that works?

 

The new air traffic management system reportedly needs to be rebooted manually every two weeks to prevent system collapse. With numerous incidents concerning the system, the government has to admit the problem and start considering to procure a new system before it is too late. 

 

Ban the ivory trade now

 

A public hearing on the government’s proposal to phase out the local trade in ivory was held on this Tuesday. Since 1990, the international trade in elephant specimens including ivory was banned except in Hong Kong, and the trade is still permitted upon applying for license from the government. I stated at the hearing of my support to completely ban the local ivory trade. 

 

Impeach CY Leung

 

I supported the impeachment motion at Legco this week on CY Leung in regard of his interference in the Legco’s select committee to investigate the UGL case. CY Leung and Holden Chow had tarnished the reputation of the government and LegCo respectively and set an utterly inappropriate precedence of intervention by the CE. We must uphold the independence and integrity of our legislature and condemn them both.

What are the policies the ITB should prioritise?

 


The IMD might have ranked Hong Kong as the most competitive economy but experts and professionals were less optimistic than our government who seemed to take pride of the result but ignored our widening gap with our competitors in the race of innovation. In my latest column on HKEJ, I identified the immediate actions the ITB must take for us to catch up in the race. (Full version of my policy proposals can be found here)
